I have found nothing as frustrating as a teacher as teaching word problems to struggling learners. I created this activity with bar models to create a visual discrimination between addition and subtraction word problems. Even though the activity has Halloween clip art, the problems have an “Adams Family” theme and can be used all year.
I teach in inclusion classrooms with special education students, students in an early intervention program and proficient learners. This activity was created to motivate all students through differentiation. Hope you enjoy the activity!
